It has come to my attention that Pig Iron Productions, a manufacturer of quality 28mm Sci-Fi models and accessories is closing shop. They had this to say on their Facebook page:
Pig Iron - Time to move on…
After much deliberation and soul searching both myself and Lisa have decided to close down Pig Iron at the end of March 2016.
We've been wrestling with this decision for many, many months but the constant pressure of running two businesses at the same time has taken its toll on us both and we feel its time, after nearly fifteen years, to take a step back and live a more 'normal' and relaxed life. On top of the business side of things we’ve both felt the need to explore other areas outside of the gaming industry but the constant 'background noise' of Pig Iron has always taken priority.
Wargaming, sculpting, painting and scenery making will still play an important part of our lives so we’ll be keeping the Facebook site open to keep in touch with the wider gaming world.
Moving forward, it would be a shame for the miniatures to disappear and we’re currently exploring ways of keeping the ranges going with other parties and we’ll keep you updated on any developments over the next month or so. Any suggestions are most welcome so please get in touch on: firstname.lastname@example.org.
All current and new orders will be fulfilled until we close the webstore down but we won’t be getting any more stock from Griffin Moulds. If you need to get in touch regarding your order please email us at the address above (Don’t forget to check your spam folder for any replies).
The last fifteen years have been an exciting challenge and very rewarding plus we’ve met some great people along the way and hopefully made some cool miniatures for your games.
Sincere thanks to all the people who have purchased our miniatures and supported us in other ways over the years.
Lets not say goodbye, lets say, “Stay in touch…”
Simon and Lisa - Pig Iron.
Anytime a manufacturer of quality products in the miniatures market closes shop it's truly a loss to the gaming community. So do yourself, and Simon and Lisa, a favor and order up some quality models or bits while they last! I ordered a squad of System Troopers which I'll use as Storm Troopers for my IG.
